The big picture is LeBron got his second superstar and the Lakers are real contenders in the Western Conference once again.

According to Wojnarowski, that might not be the case. They will also send Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram and Josh Hart - all of whom were selected in the first round - to New Orleans.

The trade can not officially happen until July 6. Apparently, such stemmed from the comments made by Anthony Davis Sr. who said that he did not want his son going to Boston because the franchise lack of loyalty to players. The Pelicans also have the first pick in this year's draft, presumably former Duke forward Zion Williamson. He was diagnosed with deep vein thrombosis in March.

That a trade was coming was no surprise, but the magnitude of the deal and the pairing of Davis with LeBron James still sent shockwaves throughout the sports world. After a disappointing first season with LeBron and the embarrassing Magic Johnson situation, the Lakers were the laughingstock of the league.

The deal can not be finalized until July 1, but the reaction was immediate - and then, James gave Davis his new number with his new team.

Davis' agent Rich Paul and long time friend James reshape the National Basketball Association landscape once again. Plus, he would be a ideal fit alongside Davis, and it's easy to envision the two running a dynamic pick-and-roll. He has averaged 23.7 points, 10.5 rebounds and 2.4 blocks during his career. However, according to reports, when push came to shove, it was Boston's unwillingness to part with Tatum that lead New Orleans to pull the trigger on a deal with LA.

The Lakers might not be done shopping for big names, either.

Davis has just one year remaining on his contract before he becomes eligible for free agency, but that was less of an issue for the Lakers than any other trade partner, given Davis' and James' shared representation. However, they were unwilling to give up as much as the Lakers ultimately did, nor did they have the high draft pick that helped the Lakers clinch the deal. Well, now the deed has been done and the Lakers look as though they'll be a foreboding team to deal with next season. He exhibited effective playmaking skills and strong defense for the Lakers when healthy.
